The 2021 Quadrantids UK peak is expected to take place just prior to sunset on Saturday, January 2.
Unfortunately, 2021 is not shaping up to be a vintage year to spot the Quadrantids for two reasons.
As already mentioned, peak activity will arrive during brighter daylight or twilight conditions.
And this problem is compounded because bright light from the waning Full Moon will further spoil the show.
This means many stargazers may simply resort to watching the 2021 Quadrantids via a live stream from the comfort of their home.
